CCM Sketch Night

It's another Monday night sketch challenge on Christian Card Maker and my day has been filled with everything except card making.  But with a few images colored ahead of time, this is the CAS card I came up with in the last 20 minutes. 

and the sketch we were given to follow ~
The Copic colored image is Garden Avery from the Paper Nest Dolls and is die cut with the Gina Marie Fish Tail Die.  The Happy Birthday stamp is by Hampton Arts.

Now even after a long day, I have an additional cute birthday card ready and spent a little time relaxing at my craft table.  Another good day!

Thank you for stopping by ~ May your evening be blessed.

April 23 ~ Lover Day!

Today's card sharing is featuring another Chrissy Armstrong design from Whimsy Stamps
Inspired by one of the Whimsy designer cards, my card is being used today for the Addicted to Card Making weekend Challenge of today, April 23 being Lover Day!

 The stamped image was copic colored. My sentiment was done on the computer and added along with a washi tape banner and three mini brads to finish off the front of the card.  Since I used decorative scissors to trim the edges of each layer I was also able to make the card base match that design when it was completed and mounted to the top fold card base.

My wish for you today - Sunday - April 23 - is that as you take time to rest and worship our Lord Jesus Christ you will Love one another, and forgive those who you know you need to.  Be grateful for God unending LOVE and FORGIVENESS.  
May today and your week be blessed!

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love for you to share with your friends.

He Is Our Peace and Our Salvation

Today I am sharing a couple of  additional cards I designed using   
Graciellie Design's April release 'PEACE', in addition to the mid-month BLOG HOP!
This time I used two other beautiful sentiments from the 
digital package, "He is our Peace and our Salvation" and "Peace begins with a smile".

Aren't these designs and sentiments perfect for the Easter season!  
If you would like to learn how I made these, please read on ~ 

The bluebirds are busy building new homes here in South Carolina,

 and I wanted this card to show  the deep blues and peach colors of the Blue Birds by using Copics B41, B45, B93, E02, E11, and C11.

Then I used Spellbinder label two dies  for the matting.
  Additionally a deep red feather and soft pink flat back pearls were added to finish the card.  
As we await the celebration of the Risen Savior, aren't we blessed in knowing He is Our Peace and our Salvation!

For my second card, I wanted to design a masculine or sympathy card using darker shades and the sentiment from Mother Teresa included in the new release package. 

The bird is Copic colored with C3, Y35, andY38. and popped up with several sprigs of chocolate brown ferns.

If you haven't visited Graciellie's Designs to see this package or her others items, the link is below.  She has so many beautiful designs and each month continues to add more. 

And as an additional BONUS, Wescott Products is offering a special prize for this blog hop! Two pair of precision scissors will be given away to one lucky person!

I have really enjoyed being the first guest designer for Graciellie Designs! What an additional blessing to work on this package which focused on Our Risen Savior, whom I serve daily.
